i have a close friend before she always want to compare what she wear to me and i think it comes to the point that i was doing great mixing clothes experiment any clothes.sometimes i thought of buying my clothes alone without my friend because she suggest many clothes though i never like it.we had attended a party 3 year ago and she wear the same color.i dont know if its coincident or she just want to the color pink,because we had talk before that i will going to wear pink dress and she will wear white but worn a little the same style with dress and its color pink too.i don't know if you experience this in the party?share your experience...

I never imitated my friends clothing for I have my own sense of style. But I have two friends who are always in a quarrel because friend 1 is always imitating the fashion of friend 2. But though they get angry at each other at times, they still remain friends and I dont know if that is for real.

I dun mind if my friends were to be wearing the same style as me.. As it will prove that i have good sense of fashion.. haha =D And if anything were to go wrong, feeling weird, at least, i wont be the only one, and my friend will be my scapegoat as well.. lol =D Dun think about the negative, instead think positively!! hehe ^_^ U can opt not to tell your friend the truth about what u gonna wear right?? It's all up to u.. lol =D

Hi, amyson. I once had a friend of mines that had put on my outfit once. She wanted to borrow my outfit and she was weigh bigger than me. I was a smaller size and she was a large. She squeezed into my outfit and stretched it. It did not make any sense. She knew that she could not fit into my clothes but she squeezed into it anyway. I think that she was very jealous of me because I was much smaller than she was. It was the way that she acted that made me think this way. Some friends admire you and some may be jealous of you when they try to copy what you may have on. You will just have to watch the signs.

That is quite flattering that your friend things you have good taste in what you wear. I would take it as a compliment.

Hi amyson! I think that you should tell your friend straight out that you don't like the idea that she copies what you wear! And if she doesn't understand then when she asks you what you are going to wear somewhere I would tell her the exact opposite of whatever you're really going to wear and see what she does! It is nice that she likes to wear what you wear, but she doesn't need to copy everything exactly! She needs to find her own taste and style! But, you should try to have a talk with her explaining this to her and tell her that your flattered, but she needs to find her own styles and colors!

i had a friend the same, but she thought i always wanted to be like her. we have a few shoes that are just alike so yeah.but i never discuss what am going to wear with certain people cause i know they will try and look almost the same but just better!

Telling a friend how one feels about being copied certainly may hurt her feelings. I have the same problem and what i do is just say im wearing a red pant suit, but i turn up in a white dress. Do this about 3 or 4 times and she'll get the message pronto! And you wouldn't have to say a thing.

i know they say that imitation is another form of flattery, but yes, sometimes it feels weird too. i experienced that when this "frenemy" fixes herself the way i did the day or days before. it is ok i guess but ofc oruse being a "frenemy" it gets to be irritating. regarding your friend, if she really is your friend then try to talk to her but be careful because she might get defensive and this issue might strain your relationship.

I don't think it's such a big deal if a friend likes your style, however, if you want to be original and is bothered by the fact that she can't find her own, be the bigger person and tell her how you feel. Don't let something small like this get in the way of your friendship. Perhaps she doesn't want you to look better than she does, especially when the two of you are going to attend a party together. Do be careful though when you are approaching the topic...be gentle and bring the topic out in a light manner. Maybe she doesn't know that it's bothering you. I have always loved comparing what I wear with my girlfriends because that's what girlfriends are there for!

I have a friend that immitates my hair. when she see I cut my hair she will do it too. I don't have a bad feeling on that area, or I am not irritated. Actually I am happy because we are always see that we are look a like. We look like identical because of the hair types. but in the case of dress, it is weird if your friend always imitates you. For sure you have different types of figure, I hope she will have her own style.

When I was in College, I used to wear jackets everyday. I just feel like it. I have 6 more friends which I consider closest to me. I can't remember when it began but they started wearing jackets as well everyday. Anyways, I never felt annoyed by it.

I never have experienced anything like this, myself. It could have been a coincidence, like you said. It might be a better idea to shop alone from now on in case she is trying to copy you. Maybe she just happens to like the same things you do, lol. Who knows? Kathy.
